European House Plan 72171 is our most popular design on Pinterest for the last 30 days. As of today, it has been repinned 1,180 times! This grand home has 6,072 square feet of living space with 6 bedrooms, 6 full bathrooms and 1 half bath. The façade is a handsome mixture of stone and brick with arched windows and a steep, European style roof. Two double garages extend from the front of the house, one on the left and one on the right, and this arrangement forms a stately “courtyard” entrance to the house.
The double-tiered entry porch is flanked by a curved double staircase. On the main level is an attractive set of French doors, and above we find a faux balcony. The arched upper window mirrors the design of the doors below.
In the 2-story foyer, you are greeted by a sweeping staircase and a formal dining room. Pass through the gallery to the 2-story great room which has a lovely fireplace surrounded by built-ins. An arched panel of windows provides a view out to the covered porch.
In addition to the great room, there is a family room on the opposite side of the kitchen. The bank of windows allows for abundant light, making this a great space for a library if desired.
The kitchen is complete with a large island and a pantry for storage, and a serving station is conveniently located in the breakfast room.
Longtime guests will enjoy the front bedroom where they have a full bath, walk-in closet and quick access to the garage and laundry room.
The master suite leaves nothing to be desired—a fireplace and built-in are right across from the bed space. A set of French doors leads to the back porch, but you can stay inside and enjoy the sunny sitting room during cold weather.
Luxury abounds in the master bathroom with a private water closet, large shower and whirlpool tub. The counter space runs the length of the opposite wall, allowing for two sinks and plenty of storage. Along with walls of space for clothing and accessories, the walk-in-closet also offers a seating area and a closet for a stacked washer and dryer.
Take the elevator upstairs, and you can walk the gallery to four more bedrooms and a bonus/media room. Special features include a sitting room, walk-in closets, built-ins and private bathrooms. Attic storage is also available above the garages.
Abundant space is found in the walkout basement if you choose to have it finished. The following rooms are listed as “future” areas: recreation room, game room, sitting rooms, family room, gym, playroom, bath, powder room and storage. Just imagine what you can do with this amazing blank canvas!
